There's no awesomeness in this so-called "awesome" wiki. (Lol)

Awesome Games Wiki was a wiki founded on good or decent games, founded on July 20, 2015‎. The site is known to be the sister site to Crappy Games Wiki. The wiki was closed on 26 September 2022 along with other Qualitipedia wikis.

Bad Qualities

  1. In late 2020 a user known as Allistayrian was promoted to be a admin and has started to delete almost every page that was "poorly-written" making this wiki more like a mess.
  2. A lot of the longest pages on the wiki has a lot of filler in them such as the Wing Commander page. [1]
  3. Hypocrisy: The rules state that adding pointers about certain games spawning memes were not allowed on the "Why it Rocks" sections due to being overused, which sounds biased because a lot of pointers in "Bad Qualities" sections of certain pages were nothing more than complain to nitpicks, and that nitpicks are getting overused in this wiki.
  4. There was once an infamous move war where Super Mario 3D All-Stars was repeatedly moved between this wiki and its sister wiki, Crappy Games Wiki, to the point where it got banned from both wikis.
  5. Geomentry Dash is in the "Hard games" category when it was mostly easy in a few levels.[2]
  6. There was also a page about Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn which was incredibly biased because the game received a negative reception. Fortunately, it has been removed.
  7. This wiki tends to be a huge complain to nitpicks. For example, in the PlayStation article, they added the fact that dust could easily get into the console's disk tray, which doesn't sound much like a bad thing at the slightest.

Good Qualities

  1. This wiki was good before the second half of 2020 while the quality control was a lot less strict.
  2. Just like its sister wiki, there are some decent pages that almost everyone can agree on, such as:
    • Disney: Epic Mickey[3]
    • Doom (1993)[4]
    • Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location[5]
    • Fortnite[6]
    • Garry's Mod[7]
    • Grand Theft Auto V, IV and San Andreas[8][9][10]
    • Minecraft[11]
    • Plants vs. Zombies[12]
    • Rayman Legends[13]
    • Red Dead Redemption 2[14]
    • Roblox[15]
    • Pac-Man[16]
    • Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum[17]
    • Super Mario Bros.[18]
    • Sonic the Hedgehog[19]
    • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[20]
    • Angry Birds[21]
    • Conker's Bad Fur Day[22]
    • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth[23]
    • Bendy and the Ink Machine[24]
  3. There were some good users on the wiki that were very handful.
  4. This wiki was less biased than Crappy Games Wiki.
  5. Fortunately, SuperStreetKombat promoted three users, Nonstopmaximum, Szczypak2005 and PituctosTheCocatiel, the first 2 of which brought back several pages removed by Allistayrian due to "poor pointers".
